Brace yourself. It's going to be a bumpy ride. This treat of the week is loaded... with deliciousness. There is nothing light about it, but it is eight bites of naughty heaven.
I know many of you are minding your intake of fried foods. I promise to bring you a baked doughnut in the future, but a little indulgence can be good if taken in moderation. This recipe yields a baker’s dozen plus some doughnut holes. Be prepared to give some away to get them out of the house. Make them... eat one... hide one for later... and then remove all evidence.
Yesterday was Rocky Road Day and today is National Doughnut Day. We took our cues from that to make today’s Treat of the Week. This doughnut is our basic cake doughnut recipe. We made it even more decadent by adding chocolate, nuts, and marshmallow. The result is sinfully good.
As a sidenote: Rocky Road is good in just about any form… even life. It is the rocks in the road that make us who we are. Even when the trail seems impassable, our strength and the support of those we hold close get us through. We must be fearless in life and view obstacles as opportunities. As my good friend once told me, “If you don’t like the view from where you stand, change your perspective.”
savour… the highway of life
Get the rest after the jump…
